of information, i just asked deputy director dan lowry what he would approximate for a simple installation and he said about $250 for the cost of the permit. that's an approximate without having specifics. >> yeah, that sounds like that's more than what it could be. >> that's per closet? >> that would be for the permit, not the cost of materials or labor. >> my point is it sounds like it would cost more to pull the permit than to actually do the work. >> commissioner walker. >> i think -- i would suggest these are issues that we prioritize and we do what we can to limit the cost to the owners of the residential hotels as a way of encouraging them to do it. so i think that, i would feel that that would be something that would do is to limit the cost of the permit. personally. >> let me add, i just mentioned that because -- i'll let the staff decide and figure it out and make a proposal, but the whole point is that i don't want to see us implementing this and then have the permitting issue be a discouragement to the property owners. we want these people to come forward to get the permits and ge
three staff from the mayor's office of housing who will give the presentation today. dan adams. brian chu. and i'm sorry -- will be making the presentations today. if you do choose to adopt the procedures manual, we'll go into the associated ordinances as the next item. >> good afternoon, commissioners we have divide up our presentation into two segments. i am here just to give a brief overview of some of the demographics of the program that was requested last time and dan adams will come up and walk you through some of the small changes and additions that have been made in the procedures manual between the time of the last informational meeting and today's meeting. and i do have some handouts i can leave with you for some of the information that i'm going to talk to you today. you had asked for general information about the number of units in our program and who is in our units? so briefly, we have approximately 1280 completed units in our bmr program. of those approximately 860 are ownership units and 420 are rental units. again i have all of this on a handout that i will give fo
, please. >> dan [speaker not understood], [speaker not understood], [speaker not understood]. >> good afternoon, sir. >>> good afternoon, commissioners. my name is dan makiarini. i'm a long-time merchant and my family is a long-time merchant in north beach. my father opened his store in the fall of 1948 and we are the the longest ongoing design house and production studio for modern jewelry and small sculpture in the united states at this time. i work with my daughter, proudly have, a family business. part of the reason there is so much interest in this project at this time is that this work was not done years ago. the process by which we arrive at how we do an infrastructure project that does not disrupt small business in a way that it runs it out has been inverted. any option that you vote for today that involves digging a hole in the middle of a main thoroughfare anywhere in this city, particularly on columbus avenue, will destroy small business. even option 3 should be looked at very closely because there is an access shaft that is being proposed in the community meeting. no one w
the presentation. >> thank you, commissioner. >> good afternoon, dan adams with the mayor's office of housing. very happy to be here to submit your approval for the procedures manual for inclusion. we were here before you for an informational update and during that hearing my colleague sandra egan did a good job. i have a more narrow task, which is good because i have a much more narrow skillset in that area. so i will read through the minor modifications that have happened since the last hearing. we have done additional outreach. we have gotten some input from other stakeholders, internal that have generated a few reviews to the manual. again the housing trust fund -- the passage of the housing trust fund will generate some modifications to the manual and we plan on come back to you next year for that update. this update doesn't contemplate or contradict any of the housing trust fund work. i'm going to refer to a memo included in your packet, which outlines the few changes that have happened since the last hearing. the first there was a clarification had a we made that bmr on-site owners
dan's bar has been an institution in the bayview neighborhood for many many years and sam jordan himself was truly an inspirational figure. he was the first african american to run for mayor in san francisco in 1963, he was a longshore man, a golden globes boxer and a staunch community activist and his legacy continues to live on and you see it in his children and his grandchildren. sam jordan's bar has served as an important gathering place for the city's working class and the african american community. i believe land marking this place is long overdue. we have planning staff here to provide the committee with an overview of this legislation and landmarking request and with that i'd like to invite you to come up and make a presentation. thank you. >> i did have an image for the overhead. >> it takes a second. overhead, please. >> can we zoom out a little bit? >> i'm not sure if you need to do it from the machine there or not. i think you should just continue. >> good afternoon, supervisors, mary brown, planning department staff to present the proposed designation for sam j
'm looking at dan. from your pencil drawing is what this space can be and working with rec and park to fix that idea. congratulations to you and all the port staff. monique, thank you, measuring engineering staff, you guys got a lot done. this is an exciting day for everybody in san francisco. extremely exciting day for folks at fisherman's wharf. i thank the mayor. we will use this well. thank you. >> all right. (applause) >> thank you very much, president fong. our last speaker is one of our best partners in san francisco. he represents the department of public works. he is the city engineer. without the department of public works, cruise terminal project at piers 27-29 would not be possible. they are probably working on about 40 projects with us right now. we are very much in their debt. and to say a few words, please help me welcome, rod, city engineer. (applause) >> give us $4 million and we'll show you how fast we can spend it. [laughter] >> this is how much we spent on this project since october of this year, in the last 2, 2-1/2 months. so, back in september monique and i sat and d
ask folks again, your comments during this comment period, is on this appeal. >> hello. i'm dan coolly, and i am concerned that there is no environmental impact report associated with this major change to the city's traffic flow, major change to pedestrians, major change to folks that will be in wheelchairs, attempting to access, major change to neighbors that are trying to park their vehicles in that very highly impacted and highly crowded neighborhood. it's shocking to me that the city would -- with a straight face, think that this was not some kind of a significant impact that would at least warrant environmental review. i'm not saying ultimately whether the project should or should not be adopted, but to think that it's entitled to some kind of a categorical exemption is a minor alteration is absolutely shocking to me as a member of the public. i am personally very concerned about these plantares in the middle of the street. if they get into intersections, and you're someone trying to walk with a cane, these plantares will be a major concern to me, as someone who has a visual issue
